"Die With Your Boots On" as written by Bruce Dickinson, Stephen Percy Harris and Adrian Frederick Smith....
Another prophet of disaster who says the ship is lost
Another prophet of disaster leaving you to count the cost
Taunting us with visions, afflicting us with fear
Predicting war for millions in the hope that one appears
No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game, no point asking who's to blame
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on,
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die
Thirteen, the beast is rising, the Frenchman did surmise
Through earthquakes and starvation, the warlord will arise
Terror death destruction pour from the eastern sands
But the truth of all predictions is always in your hands

No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, gonna die
Die with your boots on, if you're gonna try
Well stick around, gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die

No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game, no point asking who's to blame
Cause if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, gonna die
Die with your boots on, if you're gonna try,
Well stick around, gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die

    General CommentI like this song better than the original by far, in my opinion :3 Sonata Arctica has a tendency to make ALL the covers they do better than the original.. Wind Beneath My Wings, Still Loving You, and I Want Out are ALL way better than the original songs.
